CHOCOLATE BLACKOUT COOKIES

Inspired by the classic Chocolate Blackout Cake, these Chocolate Blackout Cookies feature soft chocolate cookies topped with chocolate ganache and chocolate cookie crumbs!

Just so you know who to thank once you’ve tried one of these beauties, I must tell you that the idea for these cookies came from Quinn. We were eating lunch one day, and he asked if I could make a blackout cookie. As much as I love chocolate and baking cookies, I enthusiastically jumped on that idea and got to work.

You may be familiar with the legendary Blackout Cake that was served in a now defunct Brooklyn bakery. It was a chocolate cake with a chocolate filling and frosting, and covered in cake crumbs. From what I’ve read, people absolutely adored that cake. These cookies are an homage to and a loose interpretation of that famous cake.

It all starts with the cookies. Oh, the cookies! These are the softest, fudgiest, tastiest chocolate cookies I’ve ever made. I’m certain that these are my go-to chocolate cookies now. They’re that good. And if you like, you can just make the cookies without the other embellishments and be perfectly happy.

But for blackout mode, each cookie is topped with a rich chocolate ganache. And then in keeping with the way the cake was traditionally finished, chocolate cookie crumbs are sprinkled on top.

TOFFEE SNACK CAKE

Peanut Butter Toffee Snack Cake is wonderfully simple and flavorful. A great anytime cake!

As much as I’m sure we all love pretty desserts, there’s something to be said for simple, no-fuss, everyday sweet treats. Those are the ones you can just grab whenever the craving strikes, whether it be an afternoon snack or an after dinner dessert indian rummy online cash games.

This Peanut Butter Toffee Snack Cake is filled with plenty of peanut butter flavor. My longtime love of peanut butter is no secret around here. It’s one of my favorite flavors, and I love to bake with it whenever I can. And I absolutely love it in this cake!

While I like using crunchy peanut butter to give this cake a nuttier, crunchier texture, you can certainly use creamy peanut butter if you prefer. You’ll also get a nice crunch from the addition of toffee bits in the cake as well as on top of it. Toffee bits are one of my favorite baking add-ins. They are so tiny but they have plenty of flavor and crunch.

Perhaps my favorite part of this Peanut Butter Toffee Snack Cake is that little bit of cinnamon, which is one of my favorite things to pair with peanut butter for a little unexpected flavor. You can see that pair in action in several recipes here on BoB, including Peanut Butter Snickerdoodles and Peanut Butter-Chocolate Chip Pie.

Another win for this cake is how quick and easy it is to make. You can have it mixed and in the oven in about 15 minutes. Once it’s baked, there’s no frosting to be made. Just let it cool, slice it up, and enjoy!
